Is there a rotate view tool in GIMP? I am not looking for a transformation tool, I want to rotate the document to make overwise uncomfortable strokes with a drawing tablet more natural.

If not, what alternatives are there to make such strokes more comfortable? Any plugins that add such a feature?

This page describes the tool for Adobe Photoshop: http://planetphotoshop.com/rotate-view-tool.html


Gimp canvas roation will be implemented in the upcoming release 2.10. It is already implemented in the unstable 2.9 release.

We can enter canvas rotation by Shift + middle mouse click.

Unstable releases of gimp can be found at:

Be prepared to meet bugs when running an unstable version of Gimp.
